2019 Marquis d'Alesme, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1480742 94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark From a Margaux estate that has been firing on all cylinders, the 2019 Château Marquis d'Alesme Becker is another winner. Bright, juicy notes of black cherries, framboise, and cassis give way to more spicy oak, chocolate, and dried flower notes. This beauty is medium to full-bodied and has a plush, sexy texture, notable freshness and purity, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It's one of those pretty, elegant wines that still packs rocking levels of fruit. Inner quote mark (6/2020)

94-96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2019 Marquis d'Alesme Becker was picked from 26 September to 12 October and matures in 50% new oak. It has a clean and pure bouquet with blackberry, briary, cedar and subtle floral notes - very Margaux and enticingly understated in style. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly grainy entry, a very well structured wine with a sappy finish that gets the saliva flowing. Superb. (NM) Inner quote mark (6/2020)

94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark I've been thoroughly enjoying the work that they are doing at Marquis d'Alesme in recent vintages and this very much continues the success. Sappy, juicy, well defined raspberry and blackberry fruits, concentrated in all the right places, with a saline finish that is both mouthwatering and moreish. Winemaker Marjolaine de Coninck has steered the property through the heat of the summer and got the balance just right. Harvest September 26 to October 12. (JA) Inner quote mark (6/2020)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2019 Marquis d'Alesme Becker is a blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot, harvested from the 26th of September to the 12th of October. It has an alcohol of 14% and is being aged in French oak barrels, 50% new. Very deep purple-black colored, it charges out of the gate with bold notions of baked blackberries, warm cassis and plum preserves plus hints of dried Provence herbs, cracked black pepper, woodsmoke and hoisin. The medium-bodied palate has bags of freshness and a ripe, grainy-textured frame supporting the generous black fruits, finishing long and savory. (LPB) Inner quote mark (6/2020)

Rich, deep and explosive, the 2019 possesses superb depth and impeccable balance. Soaring aromatics make a strong first impression. The wine is every bit as appealing on the palate, with layers of fruit that open up effortlessly. Sweet tobacco, cedar, licorice, grilled herbs and red raspberry fruit come together in this superb Margaux. The 2019 is 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot, harvested between September 26 and October 12. Aging is expected to be 18 months in 65% new oak and 35% once-used barrels."
